    E stop test fitted. I’m quite happy with this! I used a masonry bit to cut through the cast and it chewed through in seconds. I still need to mate the red box to the column properly and wire it all up

    I had to put the lathe back together as someone was coming round to talk about an apprenticeship. Well, that ended up not happening and I’d panic-rebuilt the machine the day before for no reason. It seemed a waste to strip it instantly so I’ve decided to use it as is for now and work through slowly with the restoration doing one bit at a time.

    Now I’m producing a few turned items from it and getting a feel for how it works, I’m growing to really like the machine! The one at the uni was a 1962 model, mine is 66, so almost no difference, so my experience is relavent and transfers seamlessly. It’s very rigid and a dream to turn on.
